QHY 12 Cooled Color CCD Telescope Camera

The QHY12 is a 14.2MP cooled color CCD Camera. It is compact and lightweight, and comes with a Sony ICX613 APS-C sized sensor. With Super HAD technology, a two stage cooling system and an active cooling fan the dark noise of the QHY12 is extremely low. The 5.12 micrometers x 5.12 micrometers pixel size is idea for very high resolution deep sky imaging, and would be a great choice for imaging with the HyperStar on board your telescope due to its super portable size and light weight (14.1 ounces).
